European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms

A European convention that sought to secure the recognition and observance of the rights enunciated by the United Nations. The Convention provides that “(e)veryone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.” Article 8 of the Convention limits a public authority’s interference with an individual’s right to privacy, but acknowledges an exception for actions in accordance with the law and necessary to preserve a democratic society.
